Summer reached its boiling point - literally - this past week across Western Europe. The United Kingdom’s Met Office tweeted that London’s Heathrow Airport reached 98.4 degrees (36.9°C), a new record for July. While the heat in Cambridge, England, rose to 100.5 (38°C) degrees. This marks only the second time triple-digit temperatures have been recorded in the United Kingdom. If you're not familiar with the British summer - its usual average temperatures are around 64.4 (18°C) degrees throughout the hottest month of July. So if those from Texas like to scoff at the seemingly low tolerance that the British have for heat, remember that these weather conditions are far from what they're used to.

The U.K was only one of many countries to shatter extreme weather records. Paris, France reported 108 degrees (42.6°C), its highest temperature ever this week. "Climate change has increased the likelihood and severity of heatwave episodes across Europe," the UK's national weather service said to the BBC. Residents have had to get creative to keep cool and keep themselves laughing despite the devilishly hot summer. Scroll down below to check out some hot weather memes to enjoy next to a fan while you're enduring this meteorology phenomenon, and don't forget to upvote your favs!

Try Mcdonalds ice cream cone. Made from ice milk. The best. Do not try their sundae's way too sweet. If you want a food coma. Their ice scram cone is so perfect. Well done, Ronald.

Ha, I wish we had ice cream... I'd love some. It's 40°C here (Netherlands), and we need the full "capacity" of our tiny freezer to make frozen water bottles to put in front of our tiny fan...

More efficient to use it on your body (but wrap it, no ice directly on skin, and 15 mins max in one go. )

I wouldn't pay £4.x for Fudge Brownie either. That's $7.50 American. Here it only sells for $2.75, or £.83.
